Tip fire proves a challenge

The NSW Rural Fire Service far West Team and the Cobar Headquarters brigade combined forces with Fire and Rescue NSW Station 256 Cobar and Station 284 Delroy crews along with Cobar Shire Council staff to contain a large fire at the Cobar Waste Depot last week. The crews were on the job for over 24 hours trying to contain the fire in the industrial waste section. It’s believed smoke from the fire also affected
production at the nearby CSA Mine for some time. ▪ Photo contributed
